Component Date of Report Summary
Unknown Or Other 18 August 2014 About 3 moths ago my car was unable to start, mercedes benz (mb) technician came and diagnose it that there is an issue with the electrinic ignition switch(eis) - that it was not recognizing my key. the tech. wiggle around the key and was able to crank and start my car. it never happen again until last week (august 16,2014), the car won't start again. i called mb and they send me a technician at my house, his diagnosis was the eis issue again and this time he was not able to start my car. he suggested that it should be towed to the nearest dealership. this morning (aug. 18, 2014), i tried to start my car and wiggle the key on the ignition and i was able to start the car again. unfortunately when i turned off the ignition, i was not able to start it again. a friend of my told me that there was a recall regarding the eis of mercedes benz c 350 in 2008. the mb camapign no. is 2008020003, march 2008. i called mercedez benz and asked them if they will cover the cost for replacing the eis. their response was, they will not because my car vin was not one of the cars that is being recalled about this eis problem. why is mb is not covering the cost, this is the same issue on the recall regarding the eis malfunction that was sent in march 2008.
Electrical System 25 June 2014 I have a 2008 mercedes benz c350. the rear passenger taillight malfunctioned causing me to be pulled over by the police. mercedes benz has since recalled the faulty tail lights and is scheduled to release replacement parts to mb dealers next month. however, it seems the entire electrical system is defective. sometimes the radio station changes when i adjust the cabin air temperature (air conditioner). the dashboard control panel constantly displays warning messages about failing headlights and side markers. aside from the recalled passenger taillight which is visibly dimmer than the driver side taillight, the other lights appeared to be working fine. yesterday the fuel gauge indicator and the coolant indicator on the dash came on - the antifreeze and fuel tanks are both full. i had a mechanic look at the lights, only to discover the plastic housing is completely singed and melted in the headlights and side markers, just like it is in the defective recalled taillight. the car is one over-priced fire trap - at this point i don't feel safe driving it. what is even more disturbing to me, is that mercedes benz is well aware of electrical problems with the c class. there are thousands of complaints about this issue online - posted to blogs and nhtsa website. mercedes is trying to piece-meal out a remedy. meanwhile, this is a big safety issue! when will nhtsa recall the entire mercedes c class line due to defective electrical issues?
